Purifying Your Home’s Air This Winter
You can easily remove particulates and allergens from your home by installing a whole-home air purification system. From air scrubbers to UV lights, purifiers work in unique ways to clean and protect your family. Keep these systems in mind when looking for ways to enhance the quality of the air you breathe this cold season.
The best air purification options attach to your central HVAC system to provide house-wide results. Air scrubbers work 24/7 to reduce the number of contaminants and allergens in your home. These systems neutralize up to 99% of all surface particulates and about 90% of all airborne debris.
They’re great at taking care of mold, pollen, dander, and dust that would otherwise irritate your sinuses. Air scrubbers are also effective at prolonging your HVAC system’s lifespan by decreasing buildup.
Ultraviolet (UV) lights, otherwise known as germicidal lights, were used in medical settings for decades before being adapted for residential use. They target the DNA of various airborne pathogens to stop them from reproducing and infesting your home.
These are also often installed in your HVAC system to clean the air as it’s being pushed into the ductwork. UV lights are an effective, chemical-free way to provide continuously high-quality air free of contaminants.
High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) systems use filters made of finely woven fibrous materials. They catch 99.97% of all the particulates in your house as small as 0.3 microns. These purifiers trap spores, mites, pet debris, pollen, and some types of bacteria. HEPA purifiers are great additions to any household because they don’t emit any byproducts and require little energy.
